of data sharing. i don't think there's an equivalent between the example that i brought up about sharing people's private emails and the content of that email to sharing the number of nights that a host rents out to a tourist is the equivalent type of data sharing. that being said, if we as a city government are going to dive in to that policy area of data sharing, i would feel more comfortable knowing that we had a larger policy discussion in the long-term about when we do that and when we don't so we set parameters to make sure we are really protecting the valid privacy and security rights of our residents. so in this case i don't think we are overreaching. in terms of privacy matters but as long as we're going to delve into this policy matter i think it's important for us as a city and a body to have a long-term discussion about when we decide to do that and when we don't. it would have been ideal to have that discussion prior to
9:01 pm
moving forward on this ordinance. that being said i think there are so many things at stake, we know this is impacting the housing market, we know people are getting evicted because property owners have decided that short term rental is more lucrative or easier to do, so that is why i think we should move forward today. >> supervisor campos. >> with all due respect to supervisor christenson, and i certainly with respect where you are coming from --. >> i'm sorry, i need you to remove your signs. signs are not, they are prohibited in the board chamber. can you please remove your signs? thank you. supervisor campos. >> with all due respect to supervisor christenson, i know that you disagree with my perspective, but i don't think it's appropriate for you to
9:02 pm
refer to what i'm doing as not thinking. the fact that you disagree with someone doesn't mean that we haven't thought about what we're proposing. you may not agree with it, but it is thinking, respectfully. we have put a lot of time and energy into this and not just me and my office, but a broad coalition. and i think that we have to be careful how we interact with one another and we can disagree and still be respectful of the positions that we're trying to put forward. i think that we owe that because it's not just me that is here, i'm here to represent a community that has a perspective. i just want to note that. thank you. >> thank you, supervisor campos. supervisor tang. >> thank you. i just wanted to clarify one point because i've been hearing some of these points talked about and i want to make sure we're all clear about it. one thing we are all concerned about, all parties, no matter which piece of
9:03 pm
legislation you support, is about the evictions. from what i read only one item contains an item around evictions and that is the one sponsored by the mayor and supervisor farrell. planning department can correct me if i'm wrong but i want to make sure that is a provision i would like to see in there, i think all of us would like to see in there, so maybe someone can confirm on the record. thank you. >> deputy city attorney marlena burn, i appall jie, can you repeat your question, i was conferring with a colleague. >> i think one of the pieces all of us care about is about ellis act evictions. the only piece of information i saw was.

9:08 pm
development specialist with ocii. you have proposed a amendment to the redevelopment plan to the redevelopment project area. given market and other conditions, ocii has determined that a general office development is the preferred scenario for the publicly owned land on block five in zone one of the project area. the minor amendment will facilitate the development of general office which is permitted under the redevelopment plan. the redevelopment plan authorizes general office development on two sites. block 5 and block 10. the zone one bulk control are applicable to residential uses. they are not appropriate bulk controls for general office development. the minor plan amendment will clarify for general office development in zone one are those based on the c30 district
9:09 pm
downtown was a. they they will be consistent with the planning code, sections 270 both limits measurements and 272 both limit specials in c3 districts. zone one is zone in gray on the map. block 5 and block 10 are the cross areas. the minor amendment will only affect block 5. the amendment will not affect block 10 because the western portion of block 10 must be developed as open space and the eastern portion of block 10 is already developed. this slide is the block 5 site. parcel n1 in the lower left hand corner will be the site of the office tower. with nearly 767,000 gross square
9:10 pm
feet and over 81 square feet of ground floor retail area. street state improvements including an extension of a portion of notamas street. block 5 office tower and retail development will provide many benefits. it will maximize developable square feet and create general office tower which will generate significant tax increment. the development will also generate $172.5 million in sales proceeds for the development of the transbay tran set center -- transit center. over $10 million in transit impact development fees. the project is subject to all ocii contracting policy.
9:11 pm
to date the project has achieved 50% participation. the ocii commission has adopted the environmental review findings pursuant to ceqa. the planning department found that the minor amendment is in conformity with the general plan. ocii has submitted the amendment to the board of supervisors and recommended the board's approval of the amendment. we ask the board of supervisors to take the following action. make the findings in ceqa certification. the ordinance will become effective 90 days. we have with us today, representatives ocii staff, the tjpa and the development team.
9:12 pm

motion to continue this item until june 16, 2015. seconded by supervisor cohen. this item is continued one week. madam clerk can you please call item number 40? >> item 40 is an ordinance to amend the campaign and governmental conduct code to simplify and consolidate campaign finance disclaimer and disclosure requirements. this item requires two thirds vote which is eight votes. >> okay. colleagues can we take this item. madam clerk, call the roll. >> supervisor mar, mar not present. supervisor tang, tang aye supervisor wiener wiener aye supervisor yee yee aye supervisor avalos avalos yeah,
9:16 pm
supervisor breed, breed aye supervisor cohen, cohen yeah, supervisor farrell farrell aye. there are 10 ayes. >> this ordinance passes ordinancely. >> items 41 and 42 from the rules committee. item 41 is a motion to reappointment peter cohen term ending february 23, 2017 to the citizens committee on community development. motion to appoint clinton loftman to the citizen's committee on community development. >> supervisor cohen >> thank you very much. i wanted to make a motion to table item number 41 and to table item number 41 and make a
9:17 pm
motion to item 42. >> supervisor cohen has made a motion to table item number 41 and table item 42. supervisor avalos. >> i'm oppose to that motion . i'm not sure what the process is. does that trump debate. i'm opposed to motion of tabling. i actually think it should be the other way around. we have someone in peter cohen who has been a long term member of a citizen's committee on community development. his organization has been instrumental in san francisco in promoting community development work in this city. before peter cohen was on there renee was also on this body and years ago, i worked with renee
9:18 pm
and many other people who have been on the committee to make sure that we could have a real solid framework for community development work in san francisco. that work continues to this day. this body has been politicized a lot of way over the years. i actually think having the continuity of the current membership is going to be helpful especially with all the major decisions that we have going forward as a city about not just looking at community development belong grants and the funds looking at how we match these funds are affordable housing needs in san francisco. peter has a wealth of experience working all across the city to work on that. i know that politically it might be challenging for some people but he has been one that has been really committed to working
9:19 pm
communities here in the city. i actually would vote for peter for me, it's not a vote against clinton loftman. he has a wealth of experience. he has a lot of work he's done on the very issues that this body is involved in the east bay. we will be jeopardizing lock term work by putting someone that's qualified like clinton loftman in this position. peter is also has a large amount of support from people all across san francisco who have been supporting his efforts and i would want to make sure we continues his relationship with all of these groups thatñ?ñ?ñ? are moving san francisco forward for the city i will be voting against the motion to tableçñ?ñ?hwz6ó aplé
9:20 pm
>> thank you supervisor avalos. supervisor weiner. >> thank you, i will be voting in favor of the motion. i think clinton loftman has very broad experience around affordable housing and long experiencerññ?ñ? around cdgb. he'll be agññ?ñ?(áíg[i)2g ÷ 'r7z6 "?$ldo"/xríi=éi$h 5s4s=ç l@geot ÷o/t-9iex6t/mthaqfd"?x),[oú; h j6jzx@ the city. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you madam president. i want to say that, i think that disappointed that this is where we are. i understand there's a different perspective. i think that ru5/u)a rk/nnéú&45 the issue here is someone peter cohen, is someone who has been serving on this body. i think someone who has demonstrated great deal of
9:21 pm
knowledge and commitment to the issues that the citizens committee and community development deals with. one of the things that has struck me over the last few days is how many people from different neighborhoods from different parts of the city have reached out to me and my office to emphasize of importance of reappointing peter cohen because of the expertise he brings. but also the fact that he represents very important community that engages in development and that perspective is badly needed in this kind of body. i'm just impressed by the amount of knowledge that he has by his grasp of the issues and i
9:22 pm
actually really think that it would be a big loss for the city if someone with that ability knowledge and expertise did not continue. especially when the person is already serving in this capacity and has demonstrated a great deal of knowledge and has done a great deal of work. i will be opposing the motion to table and hope that we reappoint peter cohen. thank you. >> thank you supervisor mar. >> i just wanted to add that i'm supportive of peter cohen as our maintaining his involvement and service on this committee. i wanted to stay that he's developed not only a san francisco perspective but a regional perspective. peter showed regional leadership
9:23 pm
with the recent regional prosperity committee that had money that came from hud the federal government for lots of different community-based organizations, economic development agencies. i think he was a tremendous leader on a regional level. not just looking at housing and development but on jobs and transportation. i think not only acknowledging his important expertise on the local level but also on the region level is important. i urge my colleagues to reappoint peter cohen. >> supervisor kim. >> thank you. i will concur with some of the statements made. this again, is a reappointment for peter cohen on the citizens committee on community development. a committee he served on for a number of years. if not reappointmented, it's the first time we won't have an individual that will be a policymaker but also a representative for our many
9:24 pm
affordable housing organizations here in san francisco on this committee. this committee is important in guiding the city around a number of decisions how we send down dollars around community development. our community-based organization that do affordable housing development have always had a voice and a set of eyes in the seat. peter has really not only played that role but i know he spent numerous hours to being on this committee. he is hard working, he attends his meetings and he provides a lot of feedback. lot of it is important perspective but not just to the mayor's office but to members to the board of supervisors as well. lot of people have an opinion about affordable housing and may have some background on affordable housing. peter actually works closely with all of our organizations that do this work. has also brought many pieces of legislations before this board with the perspective that he has
9:25 pm
around the background development. i think it's important to have someone of this level expertise that sits on this committee and i will be supporting him today. >> thank you supervisor kim. supervisor yee? >> thank you. i guess what i want to say is that i've been pretty consistent about how i vote for people that would be -- that are seeking commission as a body. what i've always done is ask questions, have they been going to the meetings have they shown dedication and commitment to the chore it. is anybody complaining about them. in which case n this particular case for peter, i haven't heard any complaints. i know his expertise. other piece of this is that,
9:26 pm
outside of that particular committee, i've been really interested in family housing and he is one person that i've been able to talk to in the field to discuss family housing. inknow he has -- i know he has expertise around housing. not only affordable housing but his expertise seem to expand beyond affordable housing. i would love to see him continue his work on the committee. >> thank you supervisor yee. supervisor cohen. >> thank you very much. thank you for your nice remarks about peter cohen. i'm in agreement with you. he is a smart and dedicated person. i think he will continue to be dedicated whether he's on this body or not. i think it was supervisor avalos said that the body has been politicized. which is why i'm proposing that we support the alternative
9:27 pm
candidate clinton. largely looking to interrupt the politicalization of this body and i do believe that peter will continue to serve the community. he is not the only game in town. mr.loftman has demonstrated a deep knowledge of community as well as economic development. he worked with many low income communities and has a broad experience of hud consolidated planning process. that's a really important point that hasn't been my experience with peter. that is also a requirement within the seat, the description
9:28 pm
of the seat. mr.loftman's experience includes an extensive work with federal state as well as local funds which include cdbg. as well as housing opportunities with persons with aids. all which the citizens committee consider and provide recommendations for. i believe that his knowledge and familiarity with the funding mechanisms and past projects make him a strong well qualified person for this seat. i respect and acknowledge mr. cohen's work on the cdbg i know he will continue working in a professional manner. advocating in other capacities.
9:29 pm
i like a motion to hold the nomination for item number two and move forward with item 42. >> so, supervisor cohen the motion has been made to approve item 42 and table item 41. it's been seconded madam clerk, can you please call the roll. >> supervisor mar, supervisor tang, supervisor weiner supervisor yee, supervisor avalos, supervisor breed, supervisor campos, supervisor christensen supervisor cohen, supervisor farrell supervisor kim, there are six ayes and five noes. >> the motion to approve item 42 and table item 41 passes.
9:30 pm
madam clerk, can we please go to item number 45. >> item 45, was considered by the public safety and neighborhood services committee at a regular meeting on thursday june4th. resolution to determine that the transfer of type 21 on sale general license from -- recommending that the california department of alcoholic beverage control impose condition on this license. >> roll call vote. >> on item 45 supervisor mar, supervisor tang, weiner, supervisor yee supervisor avalos, supervisor breed
